Dr Juergen Schmoll ( Durham AS & Cleveland & Darlington AS & SAS) talk features on the astrophotography focused on faint deep space objects.
After some theory and historical aspects, the practical side is shown by demonstrating what a DSLR can do, either on a tripod, or driven or even applied to a telescope.
Lecture Start time: 7:00 pm.
Many thanks for your nice words! I really enjoyed Sunday evening and I got lots of positive resonance about the presentation.
I have various talks in my repetoire, so I gave already talks about adaptive optics, integral field spectroscopy or building my observatory.
I think I did not give “Your first Telescope” at the SAS yet. We thought it may be a good one for the public observing events you plan in January. It is a talk about chosing a first telescope and starting to use it. I am also prepared to deliver this talk on a general meeting if you like.
I am also open for new talk subjects. If there is anything SAS members want to learn about I can see what I can do.

Your talk on the “Astro Imaging: An introduction” on Sunday night, on the
16th November 2014, which was brilliant, very informative & extremely
interesting and well worth the presentation re-design.
It was very insightful, answered a lot of questions, and we all very much
liked your astro imaging explanations & concepts and we all very much
Again thank you very much for your talk & well done, SAS very much
If you have any others in the pipeline just let me know.
